    So the other day I was walking in my local Hobby Lobby I got this idea to try.

    Using a DIY acrylic x-mas ornament, a little orange paint and some stars this is what I came up with. A quick and easy way to make Dragon Balls. Now to make the other 6!:facepalm

    Wow! Looks surprisingly good! Have you considered putting lights inside?

    Thanks guys. Yes I have thought of putting lights in it, I plan on doing a magnetic switch in all 7 so when they are gathered together they will light up.

    That's such a great idea with the magnets! I have a set of seven that I bought, but the quality is horrible compared to your one. Looks great!

    I've read some of the mangas, loved the anime and always thought that replicas of the Dragonballs would be a PITA as you don't really have a scale. In Son Goku's hands (when he's young) they seem very big, bigger than a baseball or something, but in Piccolo's hands they look ridiculously tiny. But yours looks pretty good.

    But just a question, is it the picture, or are the stars really black? I had in mind that they are yellow

    Actually in the show they are dark Redish orange, I chose to go with a red instead to better contrast with the orange of the ball.

    Looks really cool. I'm a fan of DBZ. Would you do all three versions of the Dragon Balls? The Earth, Namekian, and the Black Stars?

    Now that is a thing of beauty!!

    Omega, At this point I am only making the Earth set. However once I get some more supplies I will do a tutorial so others may build them.
